Pick a Pier and TransEurope Marinas announce a new partnership to develop a transformative industry operating standard for the marina community.
The partnership brings together two influential forces of the maritime industry: TransEurope Marinas: Europe’s most extensive marina group, spanning eleven countries and representing close to 45,000 berths; and Pick a Pier: a digital platform employing advanced technology to design innovative solutions for marinas and boaters around the globe.
Pick a Pier’s patent-pending platform is set to facilitate the highest standard of marina innovation and services for marinas and boaters with a planned next product release scheduled for April.
With crucial environmental concerns limiting the development of new marinas, sector emphasis needs to shift towards optimising existing facilities, encouraging cooperative processes and furthering relevant blue economy objectives. Pick a Pier is currently providing technological solutions to facilitate TransEurope’s sizeable membership service; simplifying processes for marinas and customers and inspiring more boaters to get out on the water and discover new destinations.
TransEurope Marinas Chairman Jean-Michel Gaigné expressed his enthusiasm for the new agreement: “Pick a Pier’s clear dedication to positive growth, whilst fully sensitive to the needs of both our customers and management teams, is very reassuring. This is a crucial step forward for the marina industry and we look forward to a fruitful and beneficial relationship.”
Idan Cohen, Pick a Pier’s CEO states that “Pick a Pier is delighted to be working with TransEurope Marinas. TransEurope has been a pioneer in the marina industry since its establishment, promoting quality boating services with an attractive smart-but-simple collaborative system. Part of their strength is their emphasis on sharing good practices, which makes them excellent partners for helping to lead technological innovation in the marina industry.”
